Practical approach to electroencephalography


簡介(Book Description from Google):
Why consult encyclopedic references when you only need the essentials? Practical Approach to Electroencephalography, by Mark H. Libenson, MD, equips you with just the right amount of guidance you need for obtaining optimal EEG results! It presents a thorough but readable guide to EEGs, explaining what to do, what not to do, what to look for, and how to interpret the results. It also goes beyond the technical aspects of performing EEGs by providing case studies of the neurologic disorders and conditions in which EEGs are used, making this an excellent learning tool. Abundant EEG examples throughout help you to recognize normal and abnormal EEGs in all situations.

Customer Reviews from Amazon:

極好Uptodate, concise, clear and very practical EEG book for all.
I have flipped thru the pages to get a taste of this book, and read here and there. I also checked the areas which are not described in clear manner in other books. I feel this is a book which put into the writing, the daily thought process of every EEG reader and daliy discussion on EEG among the neurologists, residents and technicians. This book doesnot go into details of technology but provides essentials, needed for the EEG reader, to have the whole concept of EEG. Great teacher think about the students' problems and then gives the solution in very claer and starightforward way. This prooves the teaching skills of the author. Welldone! Dr Libenson. Practical Approach to Electroencephalography

極好Very helpful EEG book
If you do not want to buy multiple books on EEG and want only one, then this is it. I wish that this book had been written sooner. I am a epilepsy fellow in training and have read many EEG primers and text books including the recommended classics like Hughes, Ebersole , Niedermyer, John's Hopkins atlas, etc...All these books are good but, are dry reading or too voluminous and, at times are difficult to digest at first pass. On the other hand I really enjoyed reading the Practical Approach to Electroencephalograph by by Mark Libenson M.D. The book is filled with all the information from basic concepts to advanced EEG interpretation written in a vey nice and easy to understand format. The author makes a special effort to simplify and explain the fundamentals and concepts in interpreting the EEG. Ample illustrative examples and easy to understand analogies are provided. There are quizzes to help you better understand the construction, advantages and potential pitfalls off various montages. While reading the book I had many "aha!" moments. There are many pearls which are very helpful even for the experienced EEG reader. This is one book that grows with you as you expand your role as an EEG reader. It suits the needs of both the novice and experienced. This book is the next best thing to having an experienced and knowledgeable Epileptologist by your side. I would highly recommend it to burdened neurology residents and epilepsy fellows who want to master EEG interpretation in an easy and knowledgeable manner. EEG techs would find it helpful too. I had fun reading it and hope that you do too.
